I'm not particularly informed so I can only speculate:
Before christmas Hearn said that the deal was almost done. A 50/50 split with 2M going to both. A UK venue likely London or Manchester.
That's the base line. What has happened since is just guesswork.
What if SKY has said that they will return to PPV for this particular event? Maybe this added revenue is the stumbling block? Maybe Hearn will not share that 50/50?
Or what if Froch is stripped of the IBF title? Will Sauerland then accept 50% for their fighter who's the champ and fights on foreign soil?
